American Solar Electric Inc. and Solon Corp. have signed a photovoltaic module supply agreement that initially calls for Solon to supply over 1.5 MW of its Tucson, Ariz.-manufactured solar panels to American Solar Electric, marking Solon's entrance into the U.S. residential market segment.
According to the companies, the combination of design and installation services from Arizona-based American Solar Electric and Arizona-manufactured products from Solon offers the most complete Arizona solution for residential PV systems to date.
American Solar Electric will begin installing Solon's German-engineered solar panels later this month. The initial focus is on supplying American Solar Electric's residential business segment, with deployment to the company's nonresidential customers later in the year. The initial agreement will furnish enough solar electric panels for the installation of 375 average-sized residential systems.
